Common Causes of Kitchen Leaks in Homes Across the Country
If you are experiencing a leak in the kitchen, there are several potential causes that may lead to significant water damage if they are not fixed right away.
Some of the most common causes of kitchen leaks in the U.S. include:
- Drains that are not properly sealed with tightened bolts or plumber’s putty
- Faucets with failed washers or worn-out gaskets
- Loose water supply connection
- Clogged pipes
- Damaged O-rings, washers, or other plumbing components
- Corroded valves
- Excessive water pressure
- Loose faucet or bad faucet-to-sink seal
- Damaged or improperly installed garbage disposals
- Refrigerator water line leaks
If you spot water damage under or around your sink, or anywhere in the kitchen where there is a water source, it is important to locate the cause of the leak before it causes substantial damage.
In some cases, it may be impossible to identify that a kitchen leak was occurring at all, because it occurred behind a wall or in an unseen environment, If that has happened to your home, and you have filed a homeowner’s insurance claim only to receive resistance from your representative, we can help.
